Katherine Petersen's December 3, 2010 review is online at The Specusphere blog. "MOST-POPULAR-EVER" Book of the Month at Wowio.com: The ebook emporium Wowio features a free ebook each month, and during July 2010 The Choir Boats smashed previous records to became its most popular free download ever! Thank you Wowio, and thanks to all the bloggers who spread the word! Faren Miller reviews The Choir Boats in the January 2010 issue of Locus magazine (see my Reviews page for quotes). High praise for Chizine Publications and its authors at Publisher's Weekly blog "Genreville" by Rose Fox: "Chizine Press continues to hit the mark. I don't know what's in the water up in Canada, but it's turning out some great writers, and CZP is finding and publishing them with amazing alacrity. If I could subscribe to a publisher like a magazine or a book club--one flat annual fee to get everything they publish--I would subscribe to CZP."
